If you only really need a few specific articles, try redirects:

Redirect permanent /old/location http://hostname.com/xxx/newloc.jpg

It's a nice simple solution for static urls, often easier than
puzzling out mod_rewrite. I haven't used them with CGI urls like
your ?p24 example, but it's worth a try.
